Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), Life Stress Reduction (LSR), and related Applied Metapsychology techniques and programs, present a new paradigm of safety and effectiveness for the helping professions, and for those seeking such help.
The TIR Association (TIRA) provides access to service, whether you want to:
What are you looking for?
- Relief from emotional pain?
- Stronger self esteem?
- Richer, more satisfying relationships?
- A more fulfilling career?
- Increased productivity and effectiveness in life?
- Personal growth?
- More self-confidence?
Productivity and career success are enhanced by resolving past failures, upsets, losses, and traumas, and by effective personal growth work.
What is “viewing”?
Viewing is an essentially educational activity in which you, the viewer (the client), inspect aspects of your life. This work is considered educational in nature because the knowledge, realizations and insights come from you, from the inside, rather than being judged for you, or given to you from outside yourself. Your job in a viewing session is the most important one, because only you know your own mental and emotional world. This is person-centered work.
Your partner in this process is your Facilitator
You can find a trained Facilitator through our Practitioner Listing. Additionally, you can learn more about the subject and the benefits it could provide for you by exploring this website.
To assist you to look at troublesome areas of your life, a Facilitator uses:
- A structured form of communication
- A person-centered method; you are the expert on your experience
- Rules built on a paradigm that establishes safety and confidentiality
- Tested, proven techniques
Relationships all too often live in our past experiences, rather than being created and enjoyed in the present. Freed from the burdens and snares of the past, we are free to deepen our connections with other people.
What is a “Facilitator”?
An Applied Metapsychology Facilitator is defined as: a person who uses the process of viewing to help you to perform the actions of viewing to achieve insights and reach your goals. A Facilitator’s function is to help you view your world and thereby to alleviate the emotional charge contained therein.
The term Facilitator is used rather than “therapist” or “counselor” because these terms imply that something is done by one person to another, which is not the case in viewing. Also, because of the educational nature of the subject, not all Applied Metapsychology Facilitators are licensed therapists or counselors.
Physical pain can be caused or contributed to by unresolved traumatic stress.*
*If you are experiencing physical pain, be sure to visit your physician.
What is an “end point”?
In Applied Metapsychology, an end point occurs when you are satisfied that the area, incident or issue being addressed is complete. One area of life might produce many end points before complete resolution, but each aspect that is addressed, each technique used to address it, goes to its own smaller end point, until the whole area is complete to your satisfaction.
The end point of any activity always includes an improvement in emotional state and an unsticking of attention, bringing one more fully into the present, and often includes a realization and/or new viewpoint on the area being addressed.
This is the point at which a successful viewing session is finished and formally ended. This unique protocol sets TIR and related techniques apart from other methodologies, and is a key component in its effectiveness and success.
It is important for you as a viewer to be aware of this and to schedule sufficient time for your sessions to be taken to an end point. One and half to two hours is about average, though the sessions can be much longer or shorter than that. After you have some experience, you and your facilitator will often have a better idea of what is a normal session length for you. Session length also depends upon the severity or complexity of what is being addressed.
As you work through one area or aspect of life at a time, you will find that areas that seemed troublesome can resolve and things that were painful to think about have had the pain melt away. Life begins to seem more fun, more of an interesting challenge.
Personal growth can help us to live by our values, reach our goals, and also be can a vital, enriching part of life in itself, for ourselves and those we care about.
Once you reach the point where the effects of past events are resolved and nothing is troubling you much anymore (the result of Life Stress Reduction), you can move on to work aimed at personal growth, self realization, and ability enhancement.
